New evidence of the Holocaust: the Shoah by Bullets

The headline reads: Father Patrick Desbois is on a mission to Uncover the Mass Graves of Nearly Two Million Jews. 60 Years After the Holocaust, Time is Running Out.

You can read the full story here.  The article mentions a revisionist website that is critical of this new evidence, but doesn’t give the link, so I am linking to it here.

The article about Father Desbois’s mission is quite long, so I’m giving you the highlights here.  This quote gives the gist of the story:

His work is bringing to light an often-neglected chapter of Holocaust history—that of entire Jewish communities massacred where they lived. “This project has focused attention on the need for greater understanding of the Holocaust in the East,” says Paul Shapiro, Director of the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). It balances our perception of the Holocaust, he adds, which has been of “trains taking people to death camps” with events that “in large part took place before the trains even started.” Over a third of the murdered six million were killed by bullets in Eastern Europe: Desbois’ work—recording testimony, documenting mass graves and even collecting the actual bullets—not only provides irrefutable evidence of this but is changing the way we understand the Holocaust itself.

I have highlighted the important points for you busy readers who don’t have the time to wade through a long article.  This is important because finally the Holocaust story makes sense.  I have written many times on my blog that it didn’t make sense for the Nazis to transport Jews from all over Europe to death camps in what is now Poland and go to the trouble of building gas chambers to kill them when they could have just killed them with bullets right where they lived.   (more…)
